      Phyllis Farek, 16, a Columbus High School sophomore, was killed .. early Saturday in a traffic accident south of Weimar.
       
      Miss Farek, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Benny Farek was a passenger in one of the cars involved in the collision. 
       
      A car driven by J. B. Rogers either slowed down or stopped because of a car in front of him, causing a chain-reaction smashup involving 4 cars proceeding north behind him.
       
      The drivers and their passengers got out to survey the wreckage.  A few minutes later, Hoehne's car drove up on the accident, striking the 2 Columbus girls who were standing on the highway.
       
      The highway patrol said all of the youths had been to a dance at New Bielau, and were returning home after the dance had ended.
       
      Miss Farek died at the scene.
       
      Funeral services for Miss Farek were held at St. Anthony's Catholic Church at 9:30 a.m. Monday, with Father Patrick Palmer officiating.  Interment was in St. Anthony's Catholic Cemetery.  A Christian Wake was at 7 p.m. Sunday at Henneke Funeral Home.
       
      Miss Farek was a member of the Columbus High School band, the Spanish Cloub, the Young Americans, Future Teachers of America, and the stage hand.  She was reporter for the sophomore class and taught a religion class at St. Antohony's Catholic Church.
       
      Survivors include her parents; 2 sisters, Judy Kristynik of Huntsville and Kathy Farek of Columbus.
       
      Pallbearers were Mark Jensen, John Seymour, Ton Rau, Gregory Mikeska, Clayton Adams and Chester Naumann.
